Network Accessible Unit
Network Addressable Unit; any presentation level service in IBM's SNA.
Network Addressable Unit. Entities within an SNA network – SSCP, PU LU – that can send or receive requests and responses. An SNA network is made up of NAUs and the underlying path control network.
See network addressable unit (NAU).
Network Addressable Unit. Either a program or a group of programs that represents the source and destination of data in a network. The three kinds of network addressable units are SSCP, LU, and PU.
(network addressable unit) An SNA term to describe the three entities which are addressable in an SNA network: SSCP, PU and LU.
Network Addressable Unit. An entity in a network that can send or receive data. The three types of NAUs are System Service Control Points (SSCPs), Physical Units (PUs), and Logical Units (LUs).
Network Access Unit. An interface card that adapts a computer to a local area network.
network addressable unit. A logical unit, a physical unit, or a system services control point. It is the origin or the destination of information transmitted by the path control network. See also network name, network address. Each NAU has a network address that represents it to the path control network. (LUs may have multiple addresses for parallel LU-LU sessions.) The path control network and the NAUs together constitute the SNA network.
Network Addressable Unit. (Unidad Direccionable de Red.)
Network addressable unit. In SNA, a logical unit, physical unit or a system services control point (SSCP).
Network addressable unit. A network address that allows a device to communicate with IBM hosts in a 3270 network.
network addressable unit. SNA term for an addressable entity. Examples include LUs, PUs, and SSCPs. NAUs generally provide upper-level network services. Compare with path control network.
